Hopelessly naive? Not hopelessly. Perhaps a bit naive though.

The sacrifices made by the men and women of our armed forces likely wasn't in vain - if you consider the real reason was to secure access to a dwindling resource the US is addicted to in order to continue to fuel our fatally flawed economic growth models that are so dependent on consumption of excess energy. Or stated bluntly - continue our way of life with 3% of the world's population (the US) consuming 25% of the world's daily oil production.

How come you don't hear the Occupy This and That knuckleheads bitching up a storm over that imbalance? Oh, wait - they really just want more shit for free on the back of someone else's labor.


Yay for the home team........
